systems theory

by rantywoman

I was listening to an interview the other day in which it was mentioned that, while people in the U.S. are encouraged to live healthier lifestyles, the barriers they face to doing so are largely systemic as opposed to personal.

I suppose that is why I’ve been feeling glum lately; I have the sense that there are so many systemic barriers to living a satisfying life as an older single woman that no amount of personal chutzpah can overcome them.
